Author Info
Anthony Trollope
Trollope worked as a civil servant in the post office until he was 52, at the same time traveling extensively in Britain, the U. S., and Europe. He turned his foreign journeys into travel books and his observations on English life into 47 novels. His books deal with most of the typical themes of Victorian literature: class, money, status, youth and age, marriage and sexual mores, and the crisis in the institutions of the Church of England. Each of the novels is self-contained, but many characters, locales, and situations recur. At the age of 57, he suffered a paralytic stroke while laughing at a family read-aloud session, and died a month later.
From the Publisher
First Line Mrs. Amedroz, the wife of Bernard Amedroz, Esquire, of Belton Castle, and mother of Charles and Clara Amedroz, died when those children were only eight and six years old, thereby subjecting them to the greatest misfortune which children born in that sphere of life can be made to suffer.
Annotation Clara Amedroz must choose between the suave Captain Aylmer, who wants to marry her for mercenary reasons, and Will Belton, a prosperous farmer. She becomes engaged to the captain, but when her eyes are opened to his true nature she breaks the engagement, turning to the unpolished but honest Will, who still loves her. One of the novel's subplots, about a divorced woman who lives with another man, demonstrates Trollope's forward-looking tolerance of divorce and unconventional behavior.
